Trivia

  • Cyd Charisse's singing was dubbed by India Adams.
  • A number for Cyd Charisse called "Two-Faced Woman" was cut from the film, and the same exact recording (sung by India Adams) was stuck into Torch Song (1953) with Joan Crawford lip-synching to it in blackface.
  • After Les and Lilly have their fight in the alley, Les heads for the bar across the street. In the background you can see a poster for the play "Every Night At Seven". This was the title of the play that Fred Astaire and Jane Powell starred in in the movie Royal Wedding (1951).
  • This film was selected to the National Film Registry, Library of Congress, in 1995.
  • Many of the props, sets, and costumes for the huge production number that goes wrong in rehearsal in Boston are from Lovely to Look at (1952), _Ziegfeld Follies, The (1946)_ and American in Paris, An (1951).
